Ryan Stays in Stir

AP reports from Chicago, "George Ryan's son says the family is 'tremendously saddened' by a judge's decision to keep the former Illinois governor in federal prison.... Ryan called the judge's ruling 'heartless and cruel.' He says his parents are 'devastated.'"

Well, Mr. Ryan, Jr., a lot of families who suffered much more than yours were tremendously saddened and devastated on January 11, 2003.  Mr. Ryan, Sr. cannot be punished criminally for his grotesque misuse of the power of executive clemency, but he certainly has no claim for any sympathy.
